Publisher's Description

Does God love everyone? When Jesus died on the cross at Calvary, did he die for the sins of the elect only or for the sins of the whole world? Can anyone respond in faith to the gospel message? Or is the act of believing a gift of God only given to a subset of humanity called the elect so that the rest of humanity is unable to believe and destined to spend eternity apart from God? What does the term elect mean in the New Testament? These are fundamental questions about the God of the Bible and the salvation He provides in Jesus Christ. This book invites you to sit as an unbiased juror and consider the traditional principles of TULIP Calvinism as explained by the leading Calvinists in their own words, then to weigh their proffered Scriptural evidence to make your own determination. This book will address exegetically all of the most commonly cited proof texts for Calvinism, with a thorough consideration of the "pillar" passages like John 6:44, Romans 3 and 9, and Ephesians 1:4. This book will defend a middle ground position (called NULIF - "new life") between TULIP Calvinism and Arminianism and demonstrate that you can tell people with confidence that God loves them, Jesus died for their sins, and they can be saved by trusting Christ for the forgiveness of their sins based on his finished work at Calvary.HUTSON SMELLEY is an attorney, Bible teacher and seminary student residing in Houston, Texas with his wife and seven children.

    I bought this book while a friend and myself were engaged in an ongoing debate about Calvinism. This friend had been listening to a lot of James White's arguments. But he did eventually renounce Reformed theology. "Deconstructing Calvinism" is a unique take on the Calvinism issue. Instead of being philosophical, or biblical, it takes a legal perspective. It then argues that Calvinism is unjust. It also critiques Calvinist proof texts. It does seem to neglect some of the more important texts often used by Calvinists. Overall it's decent shot at Calvinism, but it is by no means exhaustive. Better choices might be "Why I am not a Calvinist" by Jerry Walls, "Chose but Free" by Norman Geisler "The Other Side of Calvinism" by Laurence Vance, and "What Love is This?" by Dave Hunt.
